What a great capture of the flower ♡
Great pictures!! can I ask you what camera setup do you use? and are the flowers of l. tentaculata similar in dimensions to the l. calodictyon's ones?
Thanks for the comments!
I use a Nikon D7000 with a SB-400 flash and a handmade diffuser mounted off-camera. For lenses I use a Nikon 50mm f/1.8D and an old 35mm f/2.8 mounted on a combination of extension tubes (Nikon PK-12 and/or PK-13) either normal or reversed depending on the magnification I need.
I don't grow L. calodictyon, so I can't comment on the size comparison; I do believe L. calodictyon has a larger lip than tentaculata. Here are a couple of links from the Swiss Orchid Foundation that may help, though:

thanks for your reply, your pictures are great! I also have a Nikon (although older than yours) and I need to buy a good lens... I'll have a look at eBay for yours )
Great photography on both your Lepanthes and Stellis Morganii... And thanks for posting about your photo equipment too! I hope one day I will get some good photos to share with this group! The bar continues to get higher...
Outstanding!!! Thank you for sharing those drool-worthy pics.
Thanks for the comments, both of you!
One last shot - of the foliage:
Soooo pretty! I'm a real leaf person...I've got to keep my eye out for one of these!
